Question

I would like to remodel a connection using FRAME‑JOINT Pro for comparison purposes, but have problems with bolt spacings. Are there any other spacings or have I overlooked something?

Answer

The difference may be caused by the standard wrench dimensions, which require minimum dimensions at several locations. Thus, the exact recalculation is difficult.

RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro checks whether the wrench dimensions allow for the assembly of the connection. For this, it is possible to use standard dimensions or user specification. In order to ensure screwability, the dimensions D and L of a common socket wrench as well as b and h of a torque wrench, are specified.

However, you can change these spacings to reach the desired dimensions. To open the corresponding dialog box, use the "Details" button and the "Wrench Dimensions" button there (see Figure 01).
